This summer I have already bought two bike computers but both have failed to meet my expectations:
The Filzer had poor reviews but I thought I would give it a try anyways. Should have listened to the reviews the computer stopped receiving data after about two weeks. (Luckily Mec has a good return policy so I exchanged the computer).
Next I bought a computer from China.
The computer is wireless which is a nice perk (no wires snaking across your bike => more beautiful). Unfortunately the computer was in poor shape upon arrival. It seems like something was loose inside the computer. The computer appeared to work fine but I never put it on my bike (the rattling would drive me crazy). Because of the low price of ~$6 I actually ordered two computers. Both had the same issue. (Site).
Are there any good quality bike computers for a reasonable price? Here are my requirements:
- Under $100
- Provides Functions:
- Ave. Speed
- Time riding
- Distance for the season
- Wireless (optional)
Bonus Functionality (would pay a little bit extra):
- Heart beat monitor
- Cadence (Pedal rotations)
